I was given the opportunity to review this book. Thank you Clare. It could be read as a stand alone but I decided to read Before you go first. I was glad that I did because I think it added to the depth of Foster and Jules.
Foster and Jules have known each other forever and both want the same thing but are afraid to be open to the possibility in fear of getting hurt.
I knew there was a secret with Foster but I was not prepared for the humdinger that it was but it is crazy what low self-esteem and low self-worth can do to someone. With this combo it can make a person weak then you add Jenna the she-bitch who prays on weakness to make herself feel better this can equate for not so great reality with the potential to hurt the people Foster loves AKA Jules.
But with Foster and his own issues pushes Jules away and parties his life away.
Once the truth is out is there a possibility to move on? But to move on first there needs to be forgiveness as well as healing old issues.
I am not sure if Jenna is going to get her own story but it will need to be quite the story for me to find the love for her but I know people act they way they act because of their own issues but still she will be a hard pill to swallow.
